    How many Skype Channels (TX) does have the Tricaster Mini 4k

    Hello everybody,
    on the website: https://www.newtek.com/tricaster/mini/tech-specs/ it says

    Native support for up to 2 simultaneous Skype® video call inputs via Skype TX software integration, including tally and Talk Back communication

    But I can't connect Channel 2 to the Tricaster. I added channel 1 successfully with the Tricaster Mini 4k but adding channel 2 in Skype TX leads in endless searching. Also the Input in Tricaster just says Skype Caller and not Skype Caller 1 and 2.

    So why it says 2 on the website?
    Do I miss anything?
    Thanks in advance
    Marco

    Thanks for the answer. Yes I just saw today that there is a new update. I will check this out after the update. I am one version before which explains the one channel.

    Hi all

    As the Tricaater 410 plus been discontinued now? No updates.

    Why can’t we have 2 Channels of Skype TX?

    I Bought a Tricaater 410 plus in October last year, A couple of months before the mini 4K came out.

    Now I feel as though my machine has been made redundant and being neglected...I know we can’t have any 4K features as it’s not a 4K machine, but I do feel as though any other updated features there are not 4K should be added to the 410 plus.

    2 channels of Skype TX And SRT are Essential tools.

    Kind regards

    Joseph

    SRT Ingest is availalbe on the 410+ with the latest software update. As is NDI-KVM, External LTC timecode and the start/stop per stream feature.

    The main website update hasn't processed to show the new software update, the readme has the improvements and the download tool will get you this build.

    That build does not increase the number of Skype TX channels.

    Hi Kane

    Is this something we can look forward to in the future ?

    We Know that 4K is the future and we are looking at purchasing the 4K mini, but HD is relevant at the moment.

    Don’t seem fair that 410+ uses should miss out on a extra channels of Skype TX when things are moving so quickly In terms of 4K

    Kind regards

    Joe,
    When we brought our T40 V1, two months later they came out with the T40 V2. Lot's a nice, new features at the same price point.
    I'd have to spend $2,00 grand to get those features.
    When we brought our 460 AE2, two months later the TC1 came out.

    I sure you can figure out how to get another Skype or Zoom channel into the 410+

    Tricaster 460 Advanced Edition 2, Tricaster 40 V1
    2 Sony PXW-X70 Cameras, 2 Panasonic AG-HMC40P Cameras
    VSE 2.5 - VSE Advanced Edition, A bunch of Doo-Dads and cables
